    I just made this. Holy wow incredible amazing!! This is one of the best things to ever come out of my kitchen! I did dress it up with about a third of a can of apple pie filling and about 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts, which just sent it over the top awesome. Definitely a keeper…THANK YOU!!

    • Heidi says

      Aww ~ you’re very welcome, Heather! I’m so glad you liked it! I love the fun twist you put on it too… sounds delicious!

    • Heather says

      Heather, did you add the pie filling & walnuts to the crock pot before you cooked it or on top afterwards? I would love to know because that does sound like a delicious twist on the already yummy recipe!

  2. Evelyn S says

    Does this recipe only work with a certain size crockpot? I have a very small one so I’m wondering if it’s okay to use the same measurements and just cook it in many layers in the pot?

    • Heidi says

      Hi Evelyn ~ it will work best and cook most evenly in a 5 – 6 quart Crockpot, with just one layer of the biscuits. Hope that helps!

    • Heidi says

      Hi Jeanette ~ you can add the softened room temperature cream cheese for the last 30 minutes or so of cooking time. 😉

  3. Jess says

    thinking of making this for a work event. Do you think it’s ok to have the crock pot running on warm to keep it’s warm & gooey goodness?

    • Jess says

      So made this for the work function. I decided to cook it when I arrived. In the oval crockpot, it took about 4 hours on low to get the center cooked completely, but everyone seemed to love it.

      thanks :)

    I am writing from Perth, Australia and was wondering if you could describe the Pilbury Grands Original Biscuits so I can see if I can find something similar here in Australia.

    • Tiffany says

      So, The Grands are large biscuits that are wrapped in a tube, in the refrigerated foods section of the store. (Typically, near the milk, butter, cream cheese, etc.) they usually come 5 to a tube, near me at least. I’ve tried similar recipes with frozen biscuits–thaw them completely first, then quarter them and proceed with sugary fun–or, less conveniently but still delicious, you could use your own biscuit dough recipe, then portion out 1 to 2 tbsp dough per piece & roll gently into a ball. (You get a feel for the sizing after a few, and the 1 to 2 tbsp is just so you can decide how big a bite should be for you & yours :) )

      And now I’ve written a novel. :/ Sorry.

      Anyway, smaller cooks faster, so keep that in mind, too big and they like to stay doughy in the middle. Hope this helps!

      I make a monkey bread with frozen dinner rolls, let them rise over night then cook. I think this would work but you might have to play around with how long it cooks.

  5. Stephanie Webb says

    Has anyone tried this using a slow-cooker liner in the crockpot when making this? I’m thinking you could just cook it in the crockpot and then lift the whole thing out and turn it onto a plate (and keep the crockpot from getting sticky….?) I’ll re-post when I have a chance to try it, but please let me know if you have done this…

  6. jen says

    Do you bake the rolls in the oven first following the directions on the wrapper and then cut and add to the slow coooker, or are you putting uncooked pieces in the slow cooker?

    • Heidi says

      Hi Jen ~ you won’t bake the rolls first… you’ll be putting uncooked pieces in the slow cooker. Hope that helps! 😉
